We came here on a Saturday as part of a Tour Shop Market and Vineyard tour. Great markets and very colourful. We loved feeding the eels.

You could easily drive through Matakana and miss this treat of a shopping area which has an excellent book shop, art gallery, chocolate shop, clothes and gift shops. Sophisticated NZ offerings along with a great deli, pharmacy and cinema on the main street.
